I was one of the original adopters of this microphone, and I absolutely cannot recommend it. I ended out purchasing a Yeti instead, and have been -far- happier with the quality. This thing is currently sitting in its case, under my bed, hoping for a day where... honestly, it was a significant waste of money.
I even sent it back to have it 'repaired', and never has it met the modest expectations I wanted from it.
The gxl2400-usb is a lot better than the gxl2600-usb out if the box which is funny. I'd go as far as to call it better than the yeti which cheats a lot and sacrifices low end to eq out rumble and stuff.
I'm glad to hear that the GXL2400-USB works for you! Sadly, based on a few of my CAD experiences now, I've marked them off my list of buys and won't consider them again. The Yeti isn't perfect, but for the price I paid, it's wholly meeting my needs. With everything I've experienced, my next microphone purchase will most definitely be an XLR mic and an interface. Desk clutter stinks, but if I'm going to continue down this rabbit hole of a hobby, there really isn't any other way to go.
Yeah, unfortunately you get what you pay for and with CAD you'll still have to pay over $200 to get something good.
I personally outgrew (?) usb mics and enjoy my sm7b and stuff.
I'm happy the yeti does the job for you! If you ever go XLR be prepared to fall into a deep rabbit hole of decisions lol.
Hey I was looking at the sm7b-lc do you have any idea why thhis so much cheaper than the normal sm7b?
